    A Georgian woman is set to become the first ever female ambassador to Saudi Arabia

    A Georgian woman is set to become the first ever female ambassador to Saudi Arabia, a Kuwaiti daily said on Thursday.

    Yekaterina Mayering-Mikadze, the current Georgian ambassador to Kuwait, also represents her country in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.

    She said cooperation with the Gulf States was a "paramount task" for Georgia, especially in agriculture, real estate, tourism and finance.

    Mayering-Mikadze has already submitted her credentials to the Saudi foreign affairs minister and is waiting for an audience with the country's monarch.
